  • Jennifer Lawrence makes a Cameo

    Spoiler Alert … this article will not reveal any new buzz on JLaw. Not one ‘never before seen’ photos. Just a curious observation and my normal twisted insight. I am a TV binger. My wife will tolerate it a bit but normally heads to her fortress of solitude to write the under-appreciated wonderful work of…

  • It’s a Wonderful Life … some life lessons from Bedford Falls

    This past week, Mike Floyd shared some timeless and biblical truths from the pulpit. He pulled some clips from a classic movie to demonstrate these truths to help us remember and apply these life lessons. So, enjoy these ponderings as you think about George Bailey’s life … ⁃ If you’re going to help someone, then…

  • Wilson – Volleyball Friend or Sagely Neighbor?

    This morning, I was in the driveway getting out of the 4Runner. I just come back from Granny Bee’s and Andy’s Garage (scheduling an oil change according to the schedule Matt Jones tells me – and I always listen to Matt J). And out of the stillness of the Evergreen quiet community, I hear this…

  • Rocky, Apollo, Creed, and Now Me

    No, I am not getting in the ring. No, I am not preparing for a fight. No, the heavy weight class boxing professionals do not have a new target to bloody and bruise. But yes, I am back in the exercise routine of using the heavy bag. The recent move has changed my routine. I…

  • Shark Week and You

    It was their 30th anniversary. 30 years of television genius. No, I am not referring to Animaniacs, though a case could be made for that too. I am referring to Discovery Channel’s SHARK WEEK. Oh yeah. Now, we cut the cable cord a while back but I work around 3 TV sets in the hotel…

  • Winnie the Pooh – are you that kind of bear?

    Winnie the Pooh (from the opening pages) Sometimes Winnie-the-Pooh likes a game of some sort when he comes downstairs, and sometimes he likes to sit quietly in front of the fire and listen to a story. This evening—“What about a story?” said Christopher Robin. “What about a story?” I said. “Could you very sweetly tell…

    What I Needed to Learn from Star Wars IV – Thanks Biggs

    Any Star Wars Geeks out there? You might already know this little bit of Star Wars lore – but I find it worth repeating. It’s all about an actor named Garrick Hagon. Garrick is a London born actor who has appeared in the Dr. Who series, a James Bond film, Batman, Mission Impossible, and for…

  • Prayer For The Unknown

    Prayer For The Unknown

    WOW – I got a “Thank you but no thank you, you don’t match our qualifications” letter today – in about 9 hours from the time I sent the CV and Cover Letter. That is the quickest turnaround I’ve had in this time of transition. Sometimes, life doesn’t work out in the time schedule we…

  • A Goth Scientist Leaves a Mark

    She was different. She was a bit Goth, okay maybe a more than just a bit. She had a casket in her apartment where guests would sleep. She wore black and leather studded accessories. She was a regular church goer and bowled with the nuns and played BINGO with the senior adults. The character was…

  • Thank the Germans on Your Birthday

    Thank the Germans on Your Birthday

    As I type this, I am making plans to stop by Sprinkles at Legacy West on the way to work.  I want to get me a birthday cupcake. Sprinkles does them best. And I guess I have the Germans to thank for this tradition. You see, today (5.15) is my birthday. I read an article…
